Carrizo Creek Rig Sold and Hauled Away, and Exploration For Petro leum Shifts to Region of Super stition Hills— Experts- to Make In vestigation. Last winter an effort was made to start an oil excitement in Imperial county by the recording of a large number of claims In the Carrizo Creek region and by spreading the report that oil 'of fine quality, parafflne base, had been struck in the old Carrizo Creek well. An Investigation by El Centro men, Including a representative of The Press, disclosed the facts that no oil had been found; that no work had been done for years on the old well; that the hole was nearly full of water without a trace of oil; and that the drilling rig on the ground had been abandoned and dismantled years ago, and was half burled In drifting sand. The purpose of the promoters of the excitement seemed- to be to dis pose of the rig rather than to drill for oil. If they had any notion that oil was to...
